RALEIGH (AP) -- Officials say the adoptive parents of a five-month-old child who police say was abducted from her Mississippi home have picked up their daughter from a child welfare office in North Carolina.

Meanwhile, two sisters accused in the crime were being held in Cumberland County.

Madison Erickson was reunited with her parents yesterday, the same day that authorities raided a Fort Bragg apartment to find the infant with her biological mother.

Authorities say the alleged kidnapping appeared to stem from a disputed adoption.

Police and military officials scoured the Southeast for Madison after an Amber Alert was issued Saturday.

Authorities said two women and an armed man stormed into Jennifer and Matt Erickson's home Saturday near the Tennessee and Alabama lines, taking Madison at gunpoint.

Her biological mother, Jamie Kiefer, and her sister, Rikki Swann, are charged with single counts of robbery and kidnapping in Mississippi.

The FBI says federal charges are also possible.
